I'm thinking about taking the grandkids out ice fishing this weekend and being the fly fisher I am, I haven't used bait in years. So the question of the day is... How do you cure your shrimp for use as bait for ice fishing? I heard that regular ole store bought cocktail shrimp is about the best bait for ice fishing the local lakes. My feeble memory can't remember the brine recipe (or whatever it's called) to help make the shrimp a little sturdier to keep it on the hook better. Is there something better to use then shrimp? I'm open to all ideas as I would really like to get the kids on some little stocker's.
